This place was amazing! Food was awesome and the service was great! It's definitely a great find. It seems way out in the middle of no where, however you won't be disappointed. I would return again both for business and pleasure. Great place to visit.

Actually, the only reason I had a problem with the ambiance was that we were freezing. The temperature had dropped, and it was either raining or damp the entire time we were there. Despite that, we enjoyed the meal and will return, probably with friends, for dinner and probably brunch again.

First time attending and will not be the last. My parents come for a visit in Frederick and we decided to try Monocacy Crossing. Definitely a good choice!

I was impressed with the variety on their food and drink menus during the pandemic. Everything my party ordered was excellent. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable.

They made their COVID-19 policies very clear and provided three different seating options when making a reservation.

The food was fabulous, the server was very nice and maybe could have been a little more attentive, but she was busy. It was outdoors and gorgeous day. I kind of enjoyed eating outside. It was a wonderful day. Monocacy Crossing, you do not disappoint!

The buttermilk chicken was sweet and moist. The potions are generous. The artichoke appetizers and calamari are outstanding. Can't go wrong with any option on the menu. Often have interesting specials, kangaroo, John Dory or Lous de Mer that never disappoint.

My wife and I really enjoyed our time out. It's been awhile since we have gone out to dinner. But since you have the outside dining area. It made it very comfortable to be in. The drinks, appetizers and food are exceptional. Always a treat to go. And Becca was very helpful with our questions and her service. Thank you again, David.

We hadn't eaten at Monocacy Crossing for years but snagged a last-minute reservation there for Easter Sunday brunch. They had some drink specials on the menu, so we started things off with cocktails. Smokey Sunrise for me and a boozy coffee drink for my partner. When they ask if you want bread, say yes. They served us fresh, warm raisin bread, and brought us more when we asked for seconds. Yum. As for the mains, I had a generous portion of chorizo quiche which came with a nice side salad. She had Belgian waffles with bacon. Food was great. No dessert for me, even though I was tempted. She had something involving bread pudding and whipped cream that made her smile. Service was friendly and attentive. We sat inside at one of the high top tables near the front windows. They have a very nice outdoor eating area if you are smart enough to reserve one of those tables. That's the only thing I would do differently. We really enjoyed ourselves and will be back soon.

It's always a good time at the Monocacy Crossing but the new Spring menu is a fun change. I had the new salmon dish this weekend. It was delicious. You cannot go wrong here. Great food, super servers.

It’s been a long time since we dined here. The restaurant had been renovated, yet it still seemed dated and worn in places. Our server was top notch, introduced herself (Cheryl) and brought our drinks and food out very quickly. The food was good, although nothing special. The creme brûlée was too “custardy” for our taste. The wine list by the glass was very limited.

Overall, it was a pleasant dinner. We noted extensive outdoor seating which would be a very nice alternative to eating indoors once warmer weather arrives!
